Post Help! Camber/Toe/Caster '92 Fox Granatelli Coilovers

OK, here we go: Granatelli cradle, granatelli +1 tubular A-arms, Granatelli Coil-Over 400 or 425 or 450lb/in springs, Granatelli Caster/Camber plates, Struts are Strange Engineering 10 settings rebound. OKie dokes, I've got about .75 degrees on my camber. I'm trying to stick something on the strut to get some kind of angle for my caster. Anyone know what I should do? And more importantly what the best settings are for autocross? I drive it on the road but I want it set for a flat surface also for car shows and amateur autocross.

I recommend using negative camber instead of positive camber.

Try searching here, you should be able to find the answers. (You can't stick something on the strut to measure caster.)

I'm confused. The handling requirements for car shows are substantially different than for autocross events. And it becomes even more confusing if you decide to start professionally autocrossing!

But anyway, I bet if you search this forum for "caster camber" you'll find alignment recommendations aplenty.

'89 GT convertible, N/A 357W, MM front susp w/425# coil-overs and Koni D/As, MM TA/PB rear setup (Koni Yellows, 390-430# springs), Stoptech 332mm / 12" Baers, MM 6 point rollbar, Maier 1.5" flared fenders & quarters, 18x9.5" front/18x10.5" rear Enkei RPF-1s (street), 18x10" CCW C-10s (track), etc...

You should check with the SAE forum for the best alignment settings.......

Now seems like the right time for some Sea Bass recipes......actually I prefer pan fried lake perch.
